−  MR is important in management of DT: diagnosis, local staging, response to treatment and detection of recurrences.

− Signal intensity on T2WI correlates with distribution of fibroblast and collagen in anatomopathological samples.

− Diffusion sequences helps in differentiating DT from other soft-tissue tumours, especially sarcomas.

− DCE sequences are useful in better characterization of DT and selection those with higher risk of progression.

− Management of DT has evolved towards a more conservative approach (“watch and wait”), so importance of MR increases.
